SINTEF

Description: 
SINTEF is the largest independent research organisation in Scandinavia. We create value through knowledge generation, research and innovation, and develop technological solutions that are brought into practical use. SINTEF is a broadly based, multidisciplinary research concern that possesses international top-level expertise in technology, medicine and the social sciences, and our aim is to become the most renowned contract research institution in Europe. SINTEF is an independent, non-commercial organisation. The profits of our contract research projects are invested in new research, scientific equipment and competence development. In the course of the past five years, we have invested NOK 500 million of our own funds in laboratories and scientific equipment. The SINTEF Group comprises the SINTEF Foundation, four limited companies and SINTEF Holding. SINTEF employs 2100 staff who come from 68 different countries. Our turnover in 2011 was NOK 2.8 billion, more than 90% of which was won in open competition for contracts for industry and the public sector and project grants from the Research Council of Norway. Every year we perform more than 7000 research projects for some 2300 clients. Basic grants from the Research Council make up around seven percent of our turnover. SINTEF also acts as an incubator for new industrial companies. SINTEF operates in partnership with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, and collaborates with the University of Oslo. NTNU personnel work on SINTEF projects, while many SINTEF staff teach at NTNU. Our collaboration involves the extensive joint use of laboratories and equipment, and more than 500 people are employed by both NTNU and SINTEF. We also collaborate with other leading research organisations in Norway and abroad. SINTEF has clients in about 60 different countries. About 40 percent of our international turnover comes from the EU’s research programmes, in which SINTEF is a leading participant. European Union projects are given high priority, because we believe that it is important to participate in multinational knowledge-generation efforts, and because such projects give us access to interesting networks. Our ambition is to grow in the international R & D market, and for this reason, we are investing in areas in which we are particularly strong: oil and gas, energy and the environment, materials technology, maritime and biomarine technology, ICT, building research and medical technology. We maintain an international presence via our own subsidiary companies or laboratories in the USA, Brazil, Chile and Denmark.
